Does something feel “not right” about your own teen’s behavior?

When to Worry can help you distinguish typical teen behavior from those that merit concern. It then walks you through the steps you can take to help a struggling teen and to bring peace back into the family home.

After reading this book, you will know:

• what warning signs indicate which particular teen problems

• specific “dos and don’ts” for each teen issue

• how to effectively communicate with teenagers

• how and where to get professional help, if necessary
